    Hey guys I'm hoping you can help me with a program I'm looking for that blocks ads no matter what browser you're using. It is a paid program. It has the ability to download an updated list.

    I use to use this program but haven't in a long time. I use mainly FF, but switch to IE for various things. This program would allow me to have a list of blocked sites/strings which would prevent ads from appearing.

    Any suggestions please...

    There are so many of these freeware and shareware, you did mention that it is a paid program you were looking for and cant remember.

    could it be panicware http://www.panicware.com/index.html

    The program which you linked to I believe only stops POP-UP ads not ads directly on the site like AdBlock Plus does for FF.

    I couldn't agree more. I've used this in the past until switching primarily to Firefox, however, I still use IE for various things and hate seeing so many irritating Ads. I guess using Firefox with the Ad Block extension has spoiled me somewhat and therefore I came looking here in hopes that someone could remind me of it.
